Lisa,

perhaps this is similar to what you're looking for: the Learner Translator Corpus (http://corpus.leeds.ac.uk/mellange/ltc.html) of the MeLLANGE project (http://mellange.eila.jussieu.fr/). The included translations are also annotated with translation errors, according to a detailed error typology.

Best regards, Mark
